Too Many Ideas - Posts Tagged ‘Games’


Friday, February 9th, 2007

I started another blog a few days ago. At the tail end of last year I picked up the new edition of one of my favourite role playing games, Conspiracy X. I’m not a believer in conspiracy theories tending towards the cock up theory of history. However I do think conspiracies can make for interesting […]

Conspiracy X 2.0

Monday, October 16th, 2006

I’ve not been keeping up with gaming releases of late and I missed Eden Studio’s release of Conspiracy X 2.0 but I’m making up for it now and picked up a copy yesterday. Gone is the system from first edition that I liked but which wasn’t the easiest for players to grasp without reading the […]

Serious and Organised Revisited

Saturday, July 29th, 2006

I’ve been revisiting my notes for Serious and Organised after enough time for the ideas to mature a little more. After a bit of editing to cut fluff I got down to writing a background to go with it drawing on the classic 70s and 80s cop shows for inspiration. A bit more polishing and […]

Civ IV Not So Bad

Thursday, March 16th, 2006

I’ve played a few more games through of Civ IV and I’ve decided I like it after all. Playing it on a harder level that actually challenges me makes it a lot more interesting. Thinking back when I first played Civ it was a hard slog even on its easiest level to start with. The […]

Civ IV First Impressions

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

I gave in and bought Civ IV on Saturday. Normally I don’t pick up a game till its dropped in price but I’ve been a big Civ fan for a long time. On the plus side its very pretty. On the minus side it didn’t seem very challenging (but I was playing on the easiest […]

Plodding On

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

Its friday night so what have I been doing? I’ve been plodding on with more stuff for my new web site. And sciving off playing computer games a bit too 🙂

First thoughts on New Game with No Name (Yet)

Monday, January 30th, 2006

So I want to do stuff for the new web site. I’ve got several stories underway. I should come up with a game idea to work on too. For years I’ve been playing round with an idea for a game that can be used as both a role playing game and a wargame without any […]
